ISPs react to concerns over deployment of (awful!) "Carrier Grade NAT" http://j.mp/V7ljec (ISPreview) "Perhaps unsurprisingly most of the bigger ISPs weren't too keen to get into the nitty gritty of CGNAT, with EE (Orange UK) preferring not to comment at all and TalkTalk simply advising us that they had "no plans to introduce Carrier Grade NAT at this time" (this doesn't mean they won't do it in the future)." - - - In case you're not already familiar with the concept of Carrier Grade NAT, let me provide this succinct summary: It would break all manner of common Internet applications -- including virtually all servers -- and provide ISPs an excuse to charge extra for the "privilege" of not being subjected to it. It is primarily a technique for ISPs to further delay full deployment of IPv6. Carrier Grade NAT is being considered for deployment by ISPs around the globe. Very bad. --Lauren-- Lauren Weinstein (email@example.com): http://www.vortex.com/lauren Co-Founder: People For Internet Responsibility: http://www.pfir.org/pfir-info Founder: - Network Neutrality Squad: http://www.nnsquad.org - PRIVACY Forum: http://www.vortex.com/privacy-info - Data Wisdom Explorers League: http://www.dwel.org - Global Coalition for Transparent Internet Performance: http://www.gctip.org Member: ACM Committee on Computers and Public Policy Lauren's Blog: http://lauren.vortex.com Google+: http://vortex.com/g+lauren / Twitter: http://vortex.com/t-lauren Tel: +1 (818) 225-2800 / Skype: vortex.com _______________________________________________ nnsquad mailing list http://lists.nnsquad.org/mailman/listinfo/nnsquad
